Cooking With the Council: Birmingham City Councilors Take on New Role

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 5.57.15 PMBirmingham is rich in history, and much of that history is due in part to our “seasoned residents.” As the Birmingham City Council looks to continue building on that history, they are looking to learn from some of our senior citizens about their part in creating Birmingham’s past, and what they would like to see for the future. What better way to spark up dialogue than in the kitchen! As a part of a new project entitled, Cooking With the Council, Councilors and their assistants are visiting nursing homes and assisted living centers to serve those who for so long have served the community. The Cooking with the Council project begins in the kitchen as Councilors prepare meals for each resident…and from cooks to waiter they transition into the dining hall to serve each resident meals that were cooked with an abundance of love. For more information about everything the Birmingham City Council is doing visit
